New patient-oriented care pathways

Workpackage #7

New patient-oriented care pathways

In order for the results generated by iCARE4CVD to find their way into
clinical practice, WP7 will focus on developing and implementing cost-
effective, patient-oriented care pathways.

A CVD care pathway is a healthcare management tool that can be used to
coordinate and standardize the care of patients with CVD. They are used
to outline the recommended sequence of treatment and can exist to aid
healthcare professionals such as doctors or even be developed for patient
to use themselves.

By combining the results of WPs 1-6, we aim to discuss these novel care
pathways with patients and healthcare professionals alike, enabling
iCARE4CVD to create tools with real-world applications – such as more
accurate diagnosis, treatment response, and risk prediction.
